Opened in 1919 as a care facility for girls and then in 1925 as a hospital for mentally retarded children

The military took over in 1940 and for a few years it was leased to the American government. 1990 saw the land sold off by the NHS and Sandhill had a few reincarnations before finally laying derelict
